Demand drives additions for Island Self Storage

Island Self-Storage has expanded again!

The new 3,250-square-foot space is situated on Mill Creek Road next to ISS’s first self-storage facility.

Since opening doors in 2010, this is the fourth expansion for the company and the new facility offers ten secure storage units ranging from 80 square feet up to 576 square feet.

The new facility provides a solution for people who may be renovating or relocating and looking to store bulky household items including furniture.

Shawn Gravito, co-manager at ISS, said: “We are seeing demand from clients who want larger storage space to accommodate household moves and renovations and who struggle to find options to store their furniture”.

Fawn Wade, co-manager at ISS, said the newest storage space was being launched because of strong demand.

“We turn away customers daily and have had a high volume of enquiries about larger units for people with bulkier items. Despite not having actively marketed the product yet, we have already taken in our first clients.” Ms Wade said.

Donald Mackenzie, owner of ISS, said: “Since first launching our original Mill Creek facility, we have greatly appreciated our clients who have kept us at capacity.

“The newest addition to our storage offering reflects the demand for a slightly different product.

“We were able to configure the new facility to fill the gap for people who may be renovating or relocating and have a household worth of items to store but are not looking to access their unit regularly in between having their items delivered and collected, unlike our self-storage facilities where customers have 24/7 access.”

Mr Gravito will share oversight and operational control of the new facility with Ms Wade who said: “Like all of our units, it will be climate controlled with a variety of different unit sizes.

“The secure facility will be monitored 24 hours per day by video CCTV surveillance.”

Mr Gravito said the business will provide top customer service. He said: “We are always willing to go that extra mile for our clients.

“We can provide advice on trucking and shipping agencies and support in co-ordinating the moving of items in and out of storage units.”

He also noted the facilities – with units rented monthly – are kept clean and tidy, making it ideal for both short and long-term storage.
